Located within the grounds of Kinnersley Manor and Kinnersley Dairy Farm. Please respect the Residents and Farmer by ensuring your vehicle is parked in the designated space and consider leaving your mobile telephone number on your parking permit or dashboard
This picturesque stretch of the river is nestled in beautiful farmland surrounded by trees and fields. Due to this being a working farm you can expect to find livestock roaming freely in the fields where the river runs through. Approached sensibly this should not cause disruption to your pursuit. In addition to livestock there is a wealth of wildlife to be appreciated here with Barn owls, Red Kites and Buzzards amongst the spectacular aerial displays for those who take the time to really appreciate their surroundings. There are many mammals here to such as deer, voles and field mice for those with a keen eye and stealthy approach. The fishing here really is secondary to its natural beauty. As such, please respect the residents in and around the estate so that we can maintain our fantastic relationship with the Farmer and those fortunate enough to reside here.
Fishing should be restricted to the fields upstream of the bridge and field downstream as far as the small footbridge. Your permit will have further detail and consider the use of the What3Words app
When fishing upstream please use the east bank only and access the fields via the steel gates located roughly in the centre of each field. If you open a gate, ensure you close it behind you!
Fishing downstream is also restricted to the east bank by request of the Lady of the manor. It is also politely requested that nobody shall fish either directly from the bridge or into the weirpool from the immediate bank surrounding the bridge.
Most methods work here and you will find average depths are better than those afforded upstream. The bank is fairly even and access to the waters edge is good in the most part. However care should always be taken when approaching moving water due to unseen obstructions, undercut banks and increased flow at times of heavy rainfall.
You can find yourself in the fortunate position of being the only person around at this venue. Whilst this can provide peace and tranquility it is advisable to notify somebody of your intended whereabouts before setting off.
Traditional closed season applies.
